New Position to Bolster Successful Delivery Method
Using Agile practices and productive conflict, Cora Pruitt will support delivery teams in consistently providing value and tangible outcomes for existing and new clients.
If investing time in others brings joy, then Cora Pruitt lives with a constant smile. “I love being of service to others and, to me, Agile coaching is about teaching people how to create solutions and perform in ways that work for them and make them successful,” Pruitt shared. Earlier this year, she chose to move from a contracted Senior Delivery Manager to a full-time team member with Trility Consulting®.
When the new role of Delivery Director was created due to an increase in projects and teams, she was the natural choice to lead and evolve this effort.
A key factor is having people like Cora leading our teams and ensuring we deliver what is promised and that our teams observe more than they are asked to do and offer options and recommendations from start to finish.Michael Schmidt / Vice President of Delivery
“Part of Trility achieving year-over-year growth is due to consistently delivering value and tangible outcomes to our clients,” shared Michael Schmidt, Vice President of Delivery. “A key factor is having people like Cora leading our teams and ensuring we deliver what is promised and that our teams observe more than they are asked to do and offer options and recommendations from start to finish.”
This new role provides Pruitt the opportunity to be a positive influence for all team members. “Trility leaders don’t hesitate to let us know how we are appreciated and that we are a part of the bigger picture. I’m excited to be a part of where we go next.”
Valuing productive conflict allows Pruitt to work with clients and team members to ensure observations and feedback align and work towards achieving the best, highest-priority outcomes. “I encourage everyone to keep an open mind for feedback. To succeed as a team you need the ability to embrace other opinions and have confidence to provide yours,” she said. “You don’t get anywhere if you try to sugarcoat things – the bigger the decision, the bigger the conflict.”
One of Pruitt’s finest moments serves as a testament for how she works to serve others. She shared having a former colleague shake her hand and say, “Thank you. Because of you, I enjoy coming to work.” This same contracting engagement led to the client nominating her for TAI’s Women of Innovation Award in 2012 where she was named a finalist.
